Kurdernes president Massud Barzani er ikke nådig mot James Bakers rapport. Han finner den ubrukelig.

The president of Iraq’s Kurdish autonomous region has issued a strongly worded rebuke of the Iraq Study Group’s report on the situation in Iraq and recommendations for US policy, describing it as «unrealistic and inappropriate».

«We are in no way abiding by this report,» said Kurdish regional President Massud Barzani, a key US ally.

«Despite our thanks and gratitude for President George W. Bush and the American administration for overthrowing the previous regime and their efforts for building a new Iraq, we think that the Iraq Study group has made some unrealistic and inappropriate recommendations,» said Barzani’s statement.

It begins by criticizing the report’s authors for never visiting the Kurdish region during their nine-month-long research for the report.
